House of Cards 5th Week Photo Inspiration

The challenge this week at House of Cards is a photo inspiration.  When there is a 5th Monday in any month, we have a photo inspiration and any style of card goes!  Here is the photo, won't you come and join us this week.  Just pick something that inspires you from the photo and make a card.  I picked the stripes and the pretty autumn leaves.  Easy, peasy!


My card:

The striped paper is Picadilly mounted on craft cardstock.  The sentiment stamp and border stamp are Inspired By Stamping.  The leaves are cut from some embossed cardstock in my stash.  Ink is Cajun Craze from Stampin'Up!  Looking forward to seeing your creations for this challenge.

I design Classic & Elegant cards for the Design team.  The definition of Classic & Elegant is :  "Think a greeting card from Hallmark.  These are not really cards that fit into any other category.  They usually feature floral or other classic elements.  Less embellishments than Shabby & Vintage or Fun & Cute, but more than CAS."

Would love to see you join us over at House of Cards this week.

Happy Crafting!

  2. A lovely card, Donna! I love sentiment only cards, and this one is so beautifully decorated with autumn leaves. The striped paper makes a beautiful background and I can see that you picked inspiration from the table cloth!

  3. I love the shape of the sentiment panel, and the dsp reminds me of old-fashioned wallpaper! SO pretty!

  4. Hi Donna
